"Page cannot be found". That's OK, though, I've seen it already.

Hold the HP-2 and bring me a 1098 to go please.

I'd take a street tripple, bonnevile, a speedmaster, a tiger, scrambler, and a sprint ST.

If I buy them all used I could probably get them for around 20 grand...well, maybe 4 out of the 6.

I'd love to have one, but there's no way I can afford one. A decent middle-weight like a Ninja 650 or a Street Triple would make a nice addition to my garage. But right now even that's wishful thinking. It's a good thing I already own a few bikes.

$20k will buy a new 1098 and a used husky 610sm. It's really cool watching BMW come up with these things but the prices are insane. I could buy a perfectly good MV f41000r for that money.

There a couple of shots in the photo gallery that show the engine about to touch asphalt.

There is nothing that the Japanese can make for 10 grand that BMW can't make for 20 grand!
